According to City & State, “The Albany Power 100 highlights many prolific lawmakers, key commissioners, leaders of major businesses, nonprofits and labor unions, outspoken advocates and activists.”
City & State notes that “Greenberg Traurig has been the go-to firm for an array of health care and insurance-related interests, but Harold Iselin, Samir NeJame and the rest of their colleagues’ biggest victory this session may have been the legalization of adult-use cannabis.”
Iselin is the managing shareholder of the firm's Albany office and co-chairs the firm’s Government Law & Policy Practice. He focuses his practice on governmental affairs, health care, and insurance matters, representing diverse clients before the New York State executive branch and state legislature. Additionally, he has represented numerous clients in managed care and insurance transactions, often involving complex regulatory issues. According to Chambers USA 2019 Guide, sources describe him as "phenomenal, extremely knowledgeable and pragmatic." Iselin was described by sources in the 2018 Guide as “the best healthcare regulatory lawyer going, period,” and being “superbly connected with government agencies.”
NeJame chairs the New York State Government Law & Policy Practice and represents clients in legislative, regulatory, and procurement matters at various levels of government. CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, leaders of civic associations and important non-profit organizations regularly turn to him for his legal counsel and ability to assist their organizations to pursue their business goals through legislative means. NeJame represents a wide variety of clients in their procurement engagements with New York’s many agencies in the areas of technology, security and professional services.
